Scope and Content

The Corinne City Council Minute books are the official records of city council meetings. The city council normally met on the first Mondays of April, June, August, October, and December but council members also scheduled other meetings as needed. The City Recorder entered the minutes which are usually followed by the recorder's signature and also the Mayor's signature after each entry. Typical entries contain information about budgeting, finance, city ordinances, business and professional licensing procedures, police activities, and improvements in public services such as street repairs. "Rules and Order of Business- Standing Rules of the City Council of Corinne City- Meetings of the Council" outline the powers of the mayor and the recorder; rules for filing petitions and ordinances; and procedures for City Council meetings (March 14, 1870).
